Tongabezi Lodge


Tongabezi Lodge is a romantic hideaway on the banks of the Zambezi River just upstream of Victoria Falls. Our friendly team welcomes guests to a selection of houses and cottages, each beautifully styled with furniture and embellishments from all over Africa. Guests can dine beside the river or on their private terrace. Privately owned and run, Tongabezi combines an exclusive ambiance with the legendary warmth and hospitality of the people of Zambia.

Tongabezi's Honeymoon House


Built with the perfect view, indulgence and privacy in mind the Honeymoon House is the original blueprint for luxury African honeymoon safari accommodation. The private balcony overlooks the river, providing a perfect setting for a secluded candlelit dinner beneath the glowing African night sky. Alternatively, you can choose to dine with our other guests on one of the river decks.


Tongabezi's Bird House


The Bird House features an open-air sunken bath and a private terrace for dining under the stars. Guests can go canoeing on the river, join game drives, bush walks and enjoy sunset boat trips. Luxury African camps such as Tongabezi provide a perfect base to explore Victoria Falls and the stunning African bush surrounding it.


Tongabezi's Tree House


At the end of the swimming pool a hidden path winds along the cliff face to our secluded Tree House. Set against the basalt rock bed, amongst the branches of a riverine Ebony tree, this house spreads out over a sustainable pine deck that guarantees incredible views of the Zambezi River. The king size bed has a large, canopied mosquito net with air conditioning and the extensive space can also be used for private dining and lounging. The bathroom’s crowning glory is a perfectly positioned claw footed bath and from the Anatolian carpets to the Asian chests and West African artwork the Tree House invokes exotic African day dreams. All the inclusive Tongabezi activities are available... but this house is so much part of the surroundings that you can experience the beauty and majesty of Zambia without setting a foot outside.


Tongabezi's Dog House


The Dog House occupies another world at the furthest edges of the Tongabezi garden. It is the perfect escape for families and friends who love travel and do so together. Here, three separate decks are connected to each other and the rest of the world only by elevated walkways. Sustainable pine forests have provided the beautiful wooden decking that is raised high enough to allow the mighty Zambezi River to run underneath all the rooms during high water.


Views are spectacular from every window, sofa, bed and bath.The open plan central deck was designed around play, games, relaxation and conversation. It has a private infinity plunge pool, concertina glass doors, a double-sided fireplace facing onto both the lounge and the dining room and a spectacular bar.


Two dreamy islands of retreat can be reached via elevated walkways on either side with king size bedroom suites featuring large lounging areas and stunning en-suite bathrooms.


The Dog House is expansive and comes with its own exclusive valet, guide, vehicle and boat ensuring guests’ full control over the ultimate bespoke African safari vacation itinerary.


Tongabezi's Nut House


A haven from the elements, it is entirely enclosed with light streaming in through every wall. The Nut House combines the best art, textiles and textures from around the African continent with design elements from Morocco, Mali, Zambia and South Africa. The palette is easy on the eyes, seamlessly blending the house into Zambia's natural scenery. Folding doors open onto the elevated private garden and infinity plunge pool. Spectacular views over the Zambezi are guaranteed from the sublime riverbank setting.


Tongabezi River Cottages


Because the River Cottages are close-fronted with gauze netting in the windows, we find they are better suited to guests who feel nervous about sleeping in open fronted rooms, but still wish to listen to the sounds of the African bush at night. Personal valet’s are assigned to every room at Tongabezi luxury safari lodge. A visit to Victoria Falls is only one of many activities that can be enjoyed in the area.


Tongabezi Garden House


The result of a number of years of imagination as well as many conversations with top travel specialists and our guests the Garden House perfectly fills the family travel niche at Tongabezi. Set back from the river, seclusion and shelter are a happy swap for the sweeping Zambezi views that can still be enjoyed from any of the decks of the main lodge. It is a very private, very safe space where all the members of the family can spread out a little and indulge in an exclusive dining room, large lounge, and two double en-suite bedrooms and of course run around the garden and cool off in the private plunge pool. Tongabezi is proud of our crazily indulgent reputation and the Garden House is no compromise: Whether you are a wide eyed bush baby or parents who believe romance should always be a priority.
